Working Spouse Rule If both you and your spouse work for Vought Aircraft, one of you can opt out of medical and dental coverage and the other spouse can cover both of you. Or, each spouse can elect separate coverage. However, only one of you can cover your eligible dependents for medical and dental benefits. Both of you can cover eligible dependents for optional benefits, such as optional life.

If your spouse works for a company other than Vought Aircraft and has medical coverage available through that employer, Vought requires that your spouse enroll in that employer's medical plan if the employer pays 50% or more of the cost of the plan. Your spouse's plan becomes the "primary" payer, and your Vought coverage becomes your spouse's secondary insurance.

A change in your spouse's employment status (termination or beginning of employment, for example, or a significant change in insurance coverage) qualifies as a change in life status that allows you to change your benefit elections during the plan year.

Chances are Medicare would pay first as long as you are no longer working, or if your spouse does not have you covered under insurance through their employer. If your spouse IS working and you do have coverage through them, the group insurance would be primary if their employer has more then 100 employees working for them. Otherwise, Medicare will be primary.

Why can't i stay on my employers health insurance when i turn 65?

It depends where you live. Some employers do not provide insurance. In some countries if you are working after you are 65 or your spouse is working, you will be entitled for health insurance from employer. You will be eligible for Medicare even if you continue to work after you turn 65. It is important that you decide whether or not to enroll for medicare. You may not need all of Medicare benefits if you are still covered under your employer's plan. You can delay certain parts of Medicare, and get them later on when you retire, or if you lose your employer's insurance. You should make these decisions at least 3 months before your 65th birthday.
